Where are you from?
I grew up in Richfield, MN. Graduated from Richfield High School. Two weeks after graduation, I started attending classes at Minnesota School of Business in downtown Minneapolis. Two short years later, I graduated from their Senior Accounting program and entered the workforce as an internal auditor at B. Dalton Bookseller. As they say, the rest is history.


Give us a few sentences about yourself?
Boating is not a sport. Boating is not a activity. Boating is a lifestyle.
When I was 19, I bought my first boat for $2400. I paid $400 cash and put the remaining $2000 on my first ever Visa card. (that had a $2000 limit) I've had a boat payment ever since. That was a bunch of years and 7 boats ago!


Tell us a surprising thing about yourself?
In the 4th grade, I was chosen to appear in a pilot of kids TV game show called, "The Word Machine". The producers flew me (and my Mom) out to Hollywood for about a week to shoot the pilot. (TV Speak for first episode ever) It was a blast being in front of the bright lights and cameras for my short 15 minutes of fame. Well, truth be told, the 15 minutes of fame never happened, as unfortunately, the show never aired. I did get paid with a bunch of toys donated by the sponsors, but no ca$h!
